ACCT 6213 - Accounting-Based Valuation


Credits: 2

Covers the analysis of financial information (particularly firms’ financial statements) for making decisions to invest in businesses. Methods to determine stock value using fundamental analysis are examined in detail and applied in situations involving listed companies. Particular emphasis is given to the accounting-based valuation models. The appeal of these models is that valuation is based on accounting data; these data are not only available ex post but they are also commonly available ex ante as forecasts. Topics include a comparison of accounting, dividend, and cash flow-based approaches to valuation; methods of financial statement analysis, including ratio analysis; and the analysis of risk. Also, dealing with accounting issues and forecasting firms’ future performance. Prerequisite: ACCT 6202  or enrollment in the M.S.A. program.
